Rude Outfit is still rude - 1st @ Torino Circuit Opener 2022

Inspired by CTZ's Outfit, this is my version of the classic rude deck plus my usual spice. ;-)

Notable changes

The tournament

Game 1 - won vs Zahya Sadeghi: Versatile Smuggler

My ice suite slowed Gaia down enough to let me get to 6 points. When she stole the first 5/3 agenda she had 3 cards in the grip so I could just land a value-Punitive Counterstrike, forcing her to spend most of her credits.

In the end I simply won by scoring 9 points in a heavily guarded remote.

Game 2 - won vs Esâ Afontov: Eco-Insurrectionist

While koga had a slow start, I installed Crisium Grid on HQ (to stop Chastushkas) and SIU in the remote. He didn't expect me to tag him during my turn, so I managed to trash Aesop's Pawnshop, Paladin Poemu, and a Reaver (which he immediately got back with Simulchip). This was enough to slow him down furthermore.

Unfortunately for him, he never milled a single agenda and I managed to win by scoring 9 points behind some big pieces of ice.

Game 3 - won vs Hoshiko Shiro: Untold Protagonist

This game was very unfortunate for Darta because time was called when we were at turn 6 or so (the previous game lasted for quite some time): I had just scored an Hostile Takeover so he desperately ran R&D looking for any agendas in the top 2 cards, but he couldn't find any.

Sorry Darta, but this is your fault: please stop playing shell-game decks which make Runners think a lot during their turns! 😜

Game 4 - won vs Nyusha "Sable" Sintashta: Symphonic Prodigy

Another very quick game: Plusci stole a 5/3 agenda from the top of R&D on turn 2 or so. He ended his turn with only 2 cards in the grip and I landed a Punitive Counterstrike killing him.

Game 5 - won vs Captain Padma Isbister: Intrepid Explorer

Tight game, Maya landed an early Deep Dive which revealed two 5/3 agendas: she decided to steal only one of them, fearing Punitive Counterstrike was waiting for her (good call).

I managed to get up to 6 points when she made a quite normal run on R&D and found the second 5/3 agenda. Unbeknownst to her, 3 Punitive Counterstrikes were patiently waiting in my hand.

Sorry Maya, your lucky topdeck led to your demise.
